Range

The curves are the function R(S) = R0tanh(S/tt)exp(-S/te). These two curves for Model 3 were calculated approximately using a Model S/60-kWh (weight 4700-lbs) curve modified by:

However, it may be that the larger-format Panasonic batteries in the Model 3 will cause a different decaying exponential time constant than is the case for the Tesla Model S, which uses the smaller-format Panasonic batteries.

This curve compares the range the range-vs-speed curves for the Chevrolet Bolt EV to the two Tesla Model 3 curves:

Charging

Supercharger charging curve:

Red: Power (kW, left axis), Blue: Estimated distance (miles, right axis) versus charging time.
